HTP Episode 127 – SegaMasterTim

SegaMasterTim is a veteran of the Console Wars, having sat in the trenches at Australia’s Sega Hotline. Yes, not only does Tim have some great perspective of what gaming was like in the era of the Sega Master System, he also appreciates how the US and Australia had very different experiences with early gaming culture. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, not only do Tim and I get to talk gaming, but we extend those ideas and look at how our online socialization reflects the changes that started in the 80s.

HTP Episode 125 – Chris Byrne, “The Toy Guy”

Chris Byrne is a toy enthusiast and historian. He operates a blog called The Toy Guy and a podcast called The Playground Podcast. Noting how children use play and imagination to form how they see the world, Chris has some great insights into the roles that toys hold in our lives- both when we’re young and when we’re old. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Chris and I look at how toys have shifted in the eyes of our larger culture. The two of us look into the rise of the adult toy collector, and the weird ways the industry has settled in the wake of Toys R Us closing its doors.
